Did you even read your source? The first three links aren't even voter fraud, they are election fraud (which the paper is also titled, despite the URL) and they involve incidents of ballot box stuffing before/after the election, not people actually casting fraudulent ballots during the election. They accomplished this through using absentee ballots, which you're not ID'ing in the first place.
More than 2,000 voter registration forms filed in northern Indiana's Lake County by a liberal activist group this week have turned out to be bogus, election officials said Thursday.
So far this year, at least 18 former workers have admitted guilt or been convicted on varying charges of election fraud. The punishment has ranged from probation to several months of prison time.
A total of four Democratic officials and political operatives have now pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal a New York election.
In a development that was (unsurprisingly) ignored by the mainstream media, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) was convicted of the felony of unlawful “compensation” in the registration of voters.
The documents obtained by Judicial Watch, a watchdog group, are FBI investigators’ reports related to the 2007 investigation and arrest of eight St. Louis, Mo., workers from ACORN’s Project Vote affiliate for violation of election laws. All eight employees involved in the scandal later pleaded guilty to voter registration fraud.
Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.
A comprehensive study by the Milwaukee Police Department found a strong possibility existed that there was "an illegal organized attempt to influence the outcome" through voter fraud of the 2004 elections in Wisconsin. The Colorado Secretary of State’s office determined that nearly 5,000 people who were not United States citizens—and therefore according to the law, ineligible to vote—voted in the 2010 U.S. Senate race. And there are plenty of other examples in the modern era including one other recent U.S. Senate race and a gubernatorial election whose outcomes were determined as a direct result of voter fraud.

Well, for one even if your source were accurate, 400 instances over 2 national elections, 200 state elections, and 200 sets of thousands of local elections where hundreds of millions and maybe even over a billion total votes were cast is statistically insignificant.

It isn't insignificant when you have races like Al Franken's, where he won by 315 votes after several recounts had him trailing by as much as 700.

I have my voter's registration card. It's all I should need. I arrive at my polling station (the only place in the entire state with my name on the rolls) show said card, I sign next to my name on the rolls, they mark me off the rolls, I vote.
Simple process. Any alleged voter fraud is NOT happening at the polls, and photo ID doesn't prevent anything. In order for voter fraud to work, all of the volunteers at the polling stations have to be in on said fraud. You're name is only listed at the place you are required to vote, and is marked out (you can watch them do it) at that time.
